I thought the writing is not bad but found the story a little bland The mystery element played a strong role and Dysart and Elizabeth got their stolen moments together I skim read the last 30% The book as a whole was a 2 stars read but I am adding one star for Dysart.
I also feel that the characters aren t very well developed Both have potentials and are very likable But I think Dysart and Elizabeth could have been together or individually as characters I received an ARC for the book from the publisher on NetGalley.
